Coca-Cola, baseball, apple pie, '58 Les Paul... all American classics.
This isn't the first R8 we've come across, but man every time we get our hands on one it's just as exciting as the first. The folks at the Gibson Custom Shop never fail to wow us with just how good a guitar can feel.
This guy is everything you could want out of a Les Paul minus a time machine back to the 1950's. All OG '58 specs, from the mahogany C-shape neck with 0.887"-0.988" thickness, to the rosewood fretboard with 10" radius and 1.685" nut width. This guy is ready rock with a set of Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbuckers (6.88k neck and 7.99k bridge), and sports a Tone Pros bridge and tailpiece.
Our master techs here at EMS have given this bad boy a fresh setup, and it is ready to rip up the stage or the studio. We'll ship it to you super fast and super safe in its original Gibson hardshell case with all the Custom Shop case candy. Feel free to give us a call with any questions you may have about it!
